Default 1903 eligibility for GSM

Hi,

I have a 1903 Springfield with a Star gauged barrel, an NS bolt, and a USGI C stock. Other than these features it is a regular 1903 (no bedding in the stock, for example).

Is this 1903 legal for GSM matches?

Thank you for your time.

Adam

Yes, provided the trigger pull is at or above the minimum.

Thank you.

The trigger was way light (hovering around 2 lbs). I replaced the spring and it is now just under 4.

I've done the same thing.

I think in actual service they were allowed to drop to 3lbs, but the CMP being the CMP won't let it go below 3.5lbs.

Collectively, these are called the "CMP Games Matches", is that correct?

I had once asked if my BM59SL was eligible for the Modern Military, to which they said, "Yes"

yes, make sure you have a high number rifle. it must be 810,000 and above to compete. also no obvious signs that it was a drill rifle.

Who is they?

The 2020 CMP Rules book does not list the BM59 as legal for the National Matches.
I am sure that local match directors would allow you to shoot the BM59, we always encourage shooters to shoot, the rules can be "fudge" to encourage participation.

But if you are going to a more formal match, Eastern Games, National Matches, you best get written approval from CMP for the BM59 so that you are not turned away on match day.

All the best.

John

"They" are the CMP.........in my post, you will see that I asked specifically about eligibility for the "Modern Military Rifle" match only.

Sorry this took so long to get back to you. The BM59 is legal to use in the Modern Military Match.

Thanks,
